Updates to David Taylor's Software - 2017

This page lists the changes made to my applications during 2017.  You can register free of charge to get automatic e-mails when this page changes and I would urge you to take advantage of this free service.  For my satellite software, please join the SatSignal self-help user group   For my other software please join the David Taylor's Software self-help group.

Just as Microsoft has dropped support for Windows XP, my software is no longer tested or supported in any version of Windows prior to Windows-7.  Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows are usually supported, and some programs can take advantage of the larger memory space available with 64-bit Windows.  My programs may continue to work in those earlier versions, but this is neither guaranteed nor supported.  Please update from XP or Vista now.
